“Can't choose from the large amount of beers on the menu? Be sure to ask for a recommendation from the staff behind the bar!”

Cafe de Beuntjes

Bar Lebowski
“I think that Lebowski is one of the “must” places for students since it has a great atmosphere and organizes many events, e.g pub-quiz.”

Karibu Café
“It's an excellent location both for studying and spending time & chilling with friends. Plus, as the Karibu keeps reminding, the food is "110% natural". My personal favorite is shakshuka.”

Feestcafé De Vrienden
“Maybe this is strange coming from a Med student, but life is more than studying. Sometimes your prefrontal cortex also deserves a night off. De Vrienden is perfect for that!”
